    well over the past, ohhh,.... week i have been trying to make a tusken raider helmet. its a tusken raider so its not that difficult to accomplish but i feel as though i did a decent job (so far) as you can see from the pictures it originally started as a balloon and carboard, i then paper mached it with newspaper and wallpaer paste. it held up decently. after that i bought a bowl from the dollar store and added it to the back because the the newspaper wasn't gunn'a pull it off. i then invested it about $10 worth of fiberglass materials. i then fiberglassed the majority of the inside. NOTE: since the clothe is gunna be put over the head you can also fiberglass the outside without any quality of the "look" lost. the eyes are 1.5" pvc, the teeth is a chunk of 2"x2" cut out with a band saw. the cheeck things are dowels. all painted with silver spray paint. i then hot glued shaded visor in the pcv eyes. the visor was left over from my boba helmet, (check my boba scratch build out as well) right now im waiting for the fiberglas to harden then im gunna lay down the clothe hopefully ill upload some pictures.
